    Finally I will get some more HD channels for free. But I am also scared Tivo will take a long time to get word of the update. What is the average time Tivo will take to get this huge lineup change? Those who have already gotten the update, how fast did Tivo recognize the new lineup? Were you required to do another rescan of the channels?

    I'm waiting for that shoe to drop, too.

    I found my updated lineup and an 'as of date' and sent both links to Tivo to see if it does any good.

    I got back the standard "tell us what channels are wrong" email and I replied that this was a 'heads up' for a future change.

    Dunno if it's gonna help but most every channel is changing...

    In Pittsburgh, TiVo was updated in about 1.5 days. I didn't have to do anything to the TiVo. It just had a mile long message listing the channels added and deleted. All the season passes were automatically changed.

    In Massachusetts, they had 99% of the lineup correct in 24 hours. It took them a week to fix 3 channels which wouldn't have been a big deal at all except one of them was FOX.

    We just got slapped with the new lineup this morning here in South Jersey.. So, none of the channels match the guide, or the available channel listing. I re-ran guided setup to be sure, no change. I also checked zap2it.com to see the data that is supposedly the same as what's being provided to tivo, and found the old lineup.

    Given that it took Tribune nearly 2 months to sort out whether or not we had USA HD and CNBC HD (they FINALLY got it right last week), I'm not exactly optimistic. How recent were the lineup shifts in MA and Western PA?

    Lastly, I assume that if I reboot, I'll get a guide full of "To be announced", but with the correct channel callsigns, correct?

    I'm in the same boat here in South Jersey. I'll be checking for an update when I get home tonight. Fingers crossed.

    No update yet for me (South Jersey.)

    My buddy in Northern Delaware also had his lineup update today (apparently a week ahead of schedule) and he too doesn't have any good channel listings.

    That person in N Del would be me.

    I found that a Kent County Zip Code 19901 was a pretty close Zip. It seems to have every channel except KYW & WPVI HD. It has KYW & WPVI in SD but not HD. WCAU & WTXF is in SD & HD.

    You'll have to go & remove all the Baltimore local channels as well, but it seems the closest Zip I could find until Tivo/Verizon gets their listings updated.

    Hope it helps. It should work for any Philly suburb (S Jersey, N Del, SE PA) that got updated.

    Lemme know if anyone finds a better Zip.

    I'm now using 19901, and have most of the appropriate programming.. Very odd that VZ would choose some of the channel numbers they did for Kent County, like for the Philly locals. Take KYW, 503 in the new SJ area, but it's 511 in Kent County. Of course, Kent County has no 503. Like I said, odd.

    Thanks much for the temp zip code! Keeping my eyes on the tivo lineup site to see when i can go back to using 08053.

    South Jersey here too. As of 7am this morning, no update. Last night, rather than re-scan, I went through the lineup (using the new lineup card as a guide) and selected the channels I receive. The only issue I found that WPVI-HD and KYW-HD were listed on the card as 506 and 503, but were really 511 & 514 (I think).

    I'm in central Jersey (Mercer) and all of my channels are different. The guide data does not match. I think they started this last night sometime prior to 8PM because our prime time recordings were messed up.

    Hope this gets fixed quick, my daughter is going to revolt if she turns Dora on again and it's a country music video.

    I'm with you. I'm west of Philly and all my channels were different this morning. I went to turn on Disney channel for my daughter and she was unhappy to see a country video instead of Jo Jo's Circus. :(

    Is there a good zip code to use for South Jersey? I'm hoping that it'll be fixed when I get home, but who knows.
